LAC Brings Visual & Performing Arts to Communities Across Mississauga
The Living Arts Centre’s ARTward Bound 2017 team is hitting the road this summer bringing the visual and performing arts to communities across Mississauga.
Join us for art filled days throughout July and August! Our friendly instructors will help budding artists experiment with paint, sculpture and mixed media. Participate in a Hip Hop workshop and learn some new moves, then be entertained with a children’s performance! Performances vary by location and date. A lunch program is available at select locations. All activities are FREE. This program is recommended for children ages 5 to 12 and participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. No pre- registration is required, simply drop in for part of the program or join us for the full day! More information can be found at www.livingartscentre.ca.

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
Nomination deadline: Friday April 28, 2017, 5:00 pm
The Living Arts Centre is now accepting nominations for the Ron Lenyk Inspiring Youth Arts Awards. The awards are designed to support, foster and celebrate young talent in Mississauga. Each year, up to two $1000 awards will be presented to individuals in two age categories (ages 12-17 and 18-25) who have contributed to the growing art scene within the Mississauga and have begun to establish themselves and make an impact in their chosen field. Excellence in literary arts, media arts, performing arts and visual arts will be considered.
Ron Lenyk was a passionate devotee of the arts and advocate of youth. As CEO of the Living Arts Centre from 2011 until 2015, he was thrilled about introducing young people to the arts, supporting youth education and loved “to see the excitement on their faces. And to think one day they will be the performers and artists at the LAC. I relish the contribution they can make to the community.” In memory of Ron’s commitment to his community, generous spirit, and love of the arts, the Living Arts Centre has created the Ron Lenyk Inspiring Youth Arts Awards.

The Australian Pink Floyd Show is rightfully hailed as one of the leading concert performances known today, described by The Times as “The Gold Standard”.

After playing at bigger and more prestigious venues (including the Royal Albert Hall in 2003) the band embarked on its arena tour in 2004 performing in Europe and North America.
